Stockyards Station was by far the best venue we looked at. The staff was so helpful and the location was great. There was nothing better than being in a Historical District for the best night of my life!! I would recommend them to anyone

We had our wedding in the Lone Star Room and we get so many compliments about our great venue. The food was great, the staff were incredibly nice, and the atmosphere was just perfect. The pricing was very reasonable.

I wanted a low key, rustic venue for my reception on a budget and we got it. This place was great and Shay was easy to work with. My dad coordinated with her the most since I live out of state but everything was smooth and exactly how we wanted it. I love the cobble stone floors...

We loved aost everything about our experience at the Stockyards. The room was perfect and we had to do minimal work to make it "our" style since there was already so much personality in it.

My review is 4 stars instead of 5 because I was told I could get in any time on Friday to set up. When I showed up all the doors were locked. I couldn't get a hold of anyone in the office. When I finally reached someone they said two doors should have been unlocked (none were, we checked them all). About 20 minutes after we arrived they finally got someone to unlock the room. Other than this small hiccup I loved having my reception at the Stockyards! All my friends loved it and several wished they had gotten married in DFW just to use the space themselves!

Such an amazing venue! I could not imagine our wedding at a better place!

First of all, starting with good, the food catered by Riscky's amazing and well with the servers and bartender. It was a unique place compared to the ordinary to have a wedding, which is why I chose Stockyards Station. Also, it was a reasonably priced venue within the area.... Read More However, My husband and I were rather displeased with the wedding coordinater, Shay. I am not one to overanalyze every detail, but in the beginning I had to email her serveral times about adding other items to the bill. Secondly, She was never present at the wedding, it would have been appreciated if was she were there even momentarily to confirm everything was as expected. Due to her absence, our last names were mispelled on the marquee and we had two vegan dishes put aside for guests, in which she failed to mention to the servers. I will say that she recommended a good rental company [Simply Elegant] that we used for chair covers and lights.

I had my reception December 17, 2011 at the Stockyards Station. Mrs. Shay Lawson was amazing to work with. She was helpful and bent over backwards with whatever I needed. The food was excellent and so was the service. I would recommend this place to anyone else.

The stockyards stations had Riskys' BBQ who is housed inside the stock yards cater. The bbq was seasoned just right and tasted so good. They offered a lot of food for a little price. The food was fresh and delicious. I now go back to the stockyards just to eat at Riskys' BBQ

This venue is THE place for a fun wedding. That's why we picked it. It's located right in the heart of Fort Worth - Downtown. Although it seems sort of plain, a little decorating can fix that. The coordinator was very responsive and helpful. Our only complaint was the price... Read More of the alcohol. One standard bottle of wine was $25 and we somehow went through 26 bottles. Also, you basically have to trust that their count of the alcohol used is right. We didn't feel like we went through that many bottles in only 3 hours. Overall though, we were extremely impressed with the Stockyards!

From the moment I toured the Stockman's Club at Stockyards Station, I knew this is where we had to get married. The event coordinator was super, very responsive and always kept us in the loop via phone and email. The menus to choose from were fantastic. We went with brisket... Read More and chicken and guests still say it's the best wedding dinner they have ever had. The event rental includes food, linens, centerpieces, parking and security all for an amazing price, so amazing that my dad sprung for an open bar due to how far under budget the venue came in. They made sure everything was taken care of and we had a fun wedding in a fun place.

Stockyards Station HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

Reviewed on 10/13/2010 monica e

My experience with the stockyards station was fabulous!! It was one of the more "budget friendly" venues I had found. They do offer different rooms depending on size. We were in the Stockman's Club which I really thought had the most charisma. The floors are brick, the ceilings... Read More are high, and theres large windows surrounding the room. The cost is per person for the food choice you select. It starts at about $21 and can go up to $60+. We had brisket and chicken breasts selection from Risky's. The food was GREAT! We were worried we would not have enough and we had plenty. The room also included tables, chairs, table cloths, linen napkins (all your choice of available colors), and even centerpieces. We did not use the centerpieces because we wanted to bring in fresh flowers but it would be very cost effective to use theirs. They also have cocktail tables upon request at no additional charge with linens. We also held the ceremony in the same room at no extra cost. The room has a cement dance floor and stage already in the room and a bar with a lot of personality! Alcohol is not included in the price per person but you can add thing a la carte or you can do an open bar. You do have to have one security officer which they provide but you pay for. The staff was extremely helpful. They were always available, an email response was usually within a few hours. They always wanted to meet your needs. The room is set up for you and cleared at the end of the event also, all included in price. Overall, we had a terrific experience. The western touch in pictures really turned out beautiful. HIGHLY HIGLY recommend looking into stockyards station. Speak with Shay!!!
